Posted on 02/24/2011 7:59:52 PM PST by max americana
Just hours after Charlie Sheen went on a radio rampage, blasting his bosses at the television show, CBS issued a statement on behalf of the network and "...Men's" production company, announcing they were pulling the show from production of new episodes.
"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of 'Two and a Half Men' for the remainder of the season," CBS said in a statement late Thursday night.
"I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show and all that and so I'm just sort of seeing if they're telling the truth or not," Charlie claimed to host Alex Jones in an interview for his radio show, "The Alex Jones Show," on Thursday, referring to his CBS bosses.
"Are they happy with the $5 billion they already made off me or do they think they can turn it into $10 [billion] in a couple more seasons?" Charlie continued. "I'm just saying, you know [the show] is a runaway freakin' juggernaut."
Charlie made it abundantly clear he doesn't believe the show can survive without him, telling Alex, "Watch your ratings, dudes. Watch your stupid ratings.
"Do what you've gotta do -- I'll go make movies with superstars and not work with idiots," he threatened.
The 45-year-old also blasted show creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a "turd" while claiming that he embarrassed Chuck "in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process."

Sheen may be right..but the meltdown is priceless
Melt down or self destruction? He is pathetic.
>> claiming that he embarrassed Chuck “in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process.”
When a man is on cocaine he rules the world, and no one can convince him otherwise.
He should have Just Said No.
The producer waited to pull the plug ONLY when he was personally insulted but NOT when Sheen was on the binge. Both are morons.
It’s too bad there can’t be a show with just an interviewer and Sheen spouting this type of stuff.
Believe it or not, that’s just a snack to Charlie..
I heard that Charlie Sheen just signed a 1-year contract with the Boston Bruins. Can anybody verify? It would really be something to see this guy skating up and down the ice at the Boston Garden.
Sgt. Barnes should have shot his a$$ in Nam.
Sheen... A wazoo aperture on the scale of Mt. Rushmore.
For those in Rio Linda, that’s monumental a**hole.
>> Both are morons.
Of course “morons” pretty much describes the whole teevee crowd... on BOTH sides of the CRT. (Or LCD screen or plasma screen or computer monitor or wherever it’s viuewed.)
No way. He’s 45, which is over the hill and he’s older than Chris Chelios. Must be a stunt.
>What do women find attractive about this goofy asshole?<
The same thing which attracts a lot of women since the dawn of civilization.......a thick wallet.
The guy’s a jerk - he’s been a jerk for years and that didn’t bother CBS before.
A couple of weeks ago, I saw a clip from his most recent show or one of the most recent and was appalled at his appearance. You cannot pour poison into your body in copious amounts for years and not have it finally show on your face.
He looked so bad my first thought was AIDS, maybe cancer. TV is a visual medium - no way CBS can put him on the air looking like that.
Top of the world, Ma !
The “women” who find him attractive are probably also a bunch of “winners”...just like him.
Charlie makes that show good, shame.
